We were very fortunate that our trip to Nepal not only coincided with the holiday Dashain, but also with a few days of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights!
Day 1: worship of the crows
Day 2: worship of the dogs
Day 3: worship of the cows
Day 4: worship of the oxen
Day 5: Celebration between siblings.
Sisters put a tika on their brothers forehead and then the brothers give their sisters a tika.
